This was our second stay here and both stays have been excellent. Great location with being close to trails and all the activities on the west side of Madison.

Perfect balance of country and city

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with the rental of this property. It was so well furnished with whatever we needed whether it was kitchen, bath, laundry, sleeping accommodations, entertainment etc. The purpose of our visit was for a mini family reunion with my 93 year old father. The setting was such that everyone felt comfortable and we were able to enjoy the beautiful deck, backyard and prairie. Joan and Steve could not have been more gracious and accommodating hosts. They contributed to making this a very memorable time for my family. Thank you.

This home was perfect for our "home base"!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect as our "home base" during our son's wedding weekend in the Madison area. It had lots of room for family to gather in between wedding festivities and it is in such a beautiful and relaxing setting. The hosts were terrific too; even giving us fresh eggs from their chickens!

Great house in the country but very close to town

  • 5 of 5

We loved the yellow house and it was well-equipped and very comfortable for our stay. It is right off airport way so close to Middleton and Madison, but very quiet. We really enjoyed all of the flowers, and wildlife including spring frogs croaking at night. Lots of room and comfortable beds. We also loved the dozen fresh eggs and visiting the chickens! Would stay here again anytime.
